ORGANIC REMEDIES WILL BE LIGHTING THE SKY PINK DURING ITS ANNUAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS CAMPAIGN

The Company’s Third Annual Breast Cancer Campaign Supports the Important Work of the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition.

CARLISLE, Pa. (Sept. 26, 2022)- Organic Remedies, a medical marijuana cultivation and research organization based in south central Pennsylvania, is proudly sponsoring the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition. PBCC is a local nonprofit that supports and serves breast cancer survivors and their families in Pennsylvania through educational programming, legislative advocacy, and breast cancer research grants.

 

In recognition of the work that still needs to be done to eradicate breast cancer, Organic Remedies is removing the covers from the LED lights at its medical marijuana greenhouse in Carlisle, PA, to light the sky pink. This spectacular phenomenon will take place each evening in the month of October, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This visually stunning presentation has been approved by township officials. As the greenhouse light covers are removed, the night sky will glow a vibrant pink for approximately a 50-mile radius. While, the facility property is restricted to the public, many will be able to see this impressive display throughout the surrounding area.

“Breast cancer affects thousands of women and their families in PA each year. We want to do our part to support women currently battling breast cancer and celebrate the heroic survivors who have won the fight,” said Mark Toigo, CEO, Organic Remedies. “Lighting the sky pink throughout the month not only demonstrates our commitment to this worthy cause, but it also brings awareness to all who see this vivid display and will hopefully help us to raise more funds to support women with breast cancer.”

In addition to lighting the sky pink each night through Oct., Organic Remedies is offering select products to patients with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit PBCC. Donation jars will also be available for patients to give a donation to support PBCC. Patients can also pick up informational materials about breast cancer and support services for those with breast cancer and their families in all Organic Remedies dispensary locations.

“We exist to help the 13,000 women in Pennsylvania who will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, to support the families of the 2,200 women who will lose that battle and to serve as a resource for the hundreds of thousands more women currently living with the disease. Our mission is to find a cure for breast cancer now…so our daughters don’t have to,” said Daniele Yanich, Community Outreach Coordinator, PA Breast Cancer Coalition. “We are delighted to work with Organic Remedies again this year to raise funds to help breast cancer survivors and their families. Thank you, Organic Remedies.”

Cancer is one of 23 qualifying conditions approved by the PA Department of Health for medical marijuana therapy. Many women undergoing breast cancer treatment are finding relief through products available at Organic Remedies. For more information on medical marijuana therapies for those battling breast cancer, expert pharmacists are available for free consultations at all Organic Remedies dispensary locations.

GROWER USES AQUIFER BELOW GREENHOUSE FOR WATER-COOLED LEDs

Grower uses aquifer below greenhouse for water-cooled LEDs

 

(August 10,2022)

The old story about the cannabis industry goes that many basement cannabis growers struggled with the complexities of commercial cannabis cultivation, as going from small scale to large scale without proper expertise has proven to be extremely difficult. Yet, some cannabis growers were very much aware of what commercial horticulture means, and they leveraged their knowledge and experience to show what a mature cannabis industry would look like. Organic Remedies out of Pennsylvania is one of those growers.

Before Organic Remedies set up their 1.6 hectares of five flower rooms, the greenhouse was utilized for organic tomato cultivation, and it was known as Toigo Organic Farms. Subsequently, Mark Toigo, CEO and owner of the farm, teamed up with a group of early investors who saw the potential of medical cannabis, and in 2018, Organic Remedies was born.

Capture

A different league
Unlike most of the early cannabis operators in the US northeast, Organic Remediesopted for a greenhouse rather than an indoor facility. Toigo Farms was an ultra-modern greenhouse with good bones. Most Canadian and California facilities optedfor greenhouse operations. "I don't believe that indoor cultivation will expand ordominate in the long run," said Terry Lattimer, Director of Cultivation. "Energy costsare too high, and why wouldn't you use the free sun?"

Terry Lattimer is a horticulture veteran who has been growing for 45 years. "Ourgrower, Diego Perez, has also been in the industry for 25 years," he points out."Between the owners, Diego, our team leaders, and myself, we have over 150 yearsof horticultural experience. This meant that prepping the greenhouse for cannabiswas well planned and executed. To me, cannabis is a crop with its own peculiarities.Each crop has its unique  cultivation considerations. I find it is a lot like growing poinsettias."

The greenhouse conversion started in 2020, and perpetual harvests began in the fallof 2021. Every 2 weeks, a flower room is harvested and planted. The crop cycleamounts to 2 weeks of cloning, 2 weeks in the veg room, 2 weeks of veg time in theflower room, and 7 weeks to harvest after a flip.

Listening to cannabis
Throughout the project, the on-site project management team worked closely withWestland Greenhouse Solutions, BOM, PB Tech, and numerous local contractors who were instrumental in meeting the grower completion dates. "We had very constructive partnerships with our team of owners, installers, and designers. Wewere fortunate that we started the project just before supply issues startedthroughout the industry."

Variations in outside conditions when operating a greenhouse for medical cannabiscultivation can be more complicated than growing indoors. Outside climates canincrease pests and pathogens in a greenhouse equipped with open-air vents."Following the principles of Plant Empowerment has aided our operations a greatdeal," said Terry. "We have a cultivation plan from beginning to end which mediates issues and increases quality yields. Cannabis is a very quick crop, and that is anadvantage for insect and pest control."

Pioneers in water-cooled LEDs use
While many companies were going for indoor farms, Organic Remedies decided ongreenhouse production, and while many were opting for HPS lights, OrganicRemedies looked to Westland Greenhouse Solutions for Oreon's water-cooled LEDs."We decided to go for LEDs because of the savings in capex and opex. We are using water-cooled 1000w LED fixtures – there are 5 lights per truss on an 8m bay times4.5m post spacing. This configuration results in 450 umol." Terry pointed out.Installation costs are reduced as there are no C-profiles needed and, in trussmounting, with the small size of the fixtures, there is up to 5 times less shading thanair-cooled LED or HPS fixtures. But, from an ROI perspective, the true selling pointfor Oreon LEDs is the water-cooling feature. "The efficiency and lifespan were mostconvincing. These water-cooled LEDs at 3.5 umol/J are 2 times as efficient as HPS,which results in 50% lower operational costs."

"As a grower, the biggest selling point is that Oreon's water-cooled LEDs providebetter control of the temperature inside the greenhouse. The heat from the lights isremoved from the greenhouse. This allows growers to keep windows closed for alonger time, resulting in higher C02 levels. "This is one of the unique things aboutwater-cooled LEDs. Removing heat from the greenhouse is important several timesin the year when blackout screens are used to prevent light pollution during thewinter. We strive to be responsible neighbors in terms of light emissions."

Cooling LEDs with water coming straight from aquifer
A unique piece of this project is the method we use to cool the lights. "We are sittingon a huge aquifer here, and we use that to cool the lights." The company drilled a600ft, 900 gpm well to get water from the aquifer to a heat exchanger. It is a limestone aquifer, the same rock formation that meets the Niagara River to createNiagara Falls. The water comes out at 12 degrees and returns to the aquifer viasediment ponds at 20 degrees. The well and heat exchanger were a much cheaperoption than water chillers in both operational and installation costs.

Another key design in our greenhouse conversion was the installation of Van Dijkunits to dehumidify, especially when blackout screens are used in the summermonths. Nivolators also provide additional air circulation across the crop canopy. "Inthe future, we are looking at water cooling in the Van Dijk's, from the same aquifersource. Van Dijk can operate on heating, cooling, or on dehumidification, dependingon your set points." Terry concluded.

In conclusion, the Organic Remedies team is leveraging a number of tried and truehorticultural paradigms to grow cannabis by leveraging their past experiences. Withthe competitive nature of today's markets, under the leadership of experiencedhorticultural industry experts, Organic Remedies is driving down the cost ofproduction, which it ultimately passes along to patients in Pennsylvania.

ORGANIC REMEDIES BRINGS UNIQUE MEDICAL MARIJUANA THERAPIES TO PATIENTS IN BETHEL PARK, PA

Organic Remedies Balm

Shannon Ye, PharmD.
Organic Remedies Balm

"My pain disappeared after applying."

"This is my favorite product."

"I'm going to purchase two the next time."

This is some feedback from my patients about our Organic Remedies Topical Balm.

I recommend a topical for almost every patient with pain, especially muscle and joint pain. Topicals are a very safe medical marijuana product, as they offer localized pain relief without the increased risk of impairment.

Our Organic Remedies Topical Balm contains 500 milligrams of THC along with the soothing elements of menthol and capsicum to provide cooling and warming sensations.

Anti-inflammatory essential oils of laurel, arnica, and eucalyptus are also added to the beeswax and petrolatum mixture to make up the final product that so many of our patients love.

To use, we simply recommend massaging the topical balm directly to the pain area, avoiding any sensitive skin or mucus membranes. We recommend first testing a small area to observe any potential irritation or adverse effects.

If none, the Organic Remedies Topical Balm should be safe to apply throughout the day as needed.

Any questions, please reach out to your Organic Remedies pharmacist or patient care consultant. Thank you for listening.

All About Terpenes

A very common topic that asked at our dispensaries. What our terpenes? Where they found and what do they do?

Terpenes are a type of phytochemical found among the whole plant kingdom. There have been over 3,000 identified and they're in a variety of plants. Marijuana included.

In marijuana, there  have been over 500 identified, although only about 20 or 30 are commonly referred to.

They have major influence on the entourage effect often claimed in cannabis. We often receive questions whether our products contain food derived terpenes... terpenes derive from things such as lemons, limes and other various herbs... or whether our genes are cannabis derived terpenes.

We are proud to say that we only use cannabis derived terpenes derived from the plants extracted. So all of our vape cartridges, all of our bio extracts, as well as our saps, all contain only cannabis derived terpenes.

Rh0xlLbqYitIAQiX3G8VgJK4gwJSYxKKl0JFnRYF1Fg

CO2 Sap – what is it?

We often receive questions about Sap at our dispensaries as some patients aren't quite sure what it is.

Our Sap is an extract produced from supercritical CO2. It is a carboxylic product that contains 10- 14% terpenes and about 70% THC. It can be both vaporized as well as used orally, and it is quite flavorful with the addition of the terpenes as well as the flavonoids and carotenoids.

It would be considered a full spectrum product. So for those seeking more of an entourage effect, the Sap is a great place to start.

HTE Full Spectrum Cartridges

One of our largest products is our HTE cartridge, also known as High Terpene Extract.

Our high Terpin extract is produced via supercritical CO2 extraction. It is the "essential oils" of cannabis. So our HTE's are a full spectrum cartridge that contain flavonoids, carotenoids, as well as a lower percentage of THC (average between 55 to 65% THC) with an average terpene content of around 8-12%.

As with all of our vaporizable products, our HTE's only contain cannabis derived turbines from the original plant that it was extracted from.

Enjoy your HTE's!

Nanoemulsions – what are they?

We are proud to say that we are one of the only manufacturers of water soluble nano-emulsions in the state currently, and we often receive a lot of questions and inquiries about these products.

A nanoemulsion is a water soluble edible where the size of the particles are under a 100 nanometers. That enables the avoidance of first pass metabolism in the body. This leads to increased bioavailability.

Most oil soluble products have to first go through the liver, which is why a lot of times they don't hit for sometimes about 45 minutes to an hour. On the other hand, nano-emulsions will typically start medicating within about 15 to 20 minutes.

Our elixirs are available in a 3.3 mg per milliliter, which allows for a terrific microdosing effect.

For those with gastro esophageal reflux disease that may be sensitive to oil or nano motions do not contain any MSG or oil based products.

They'll be available in two forms both powder and liquid.

CO2 vs. Hydrocarbon Extraction

Let's talk about some of the extraction methods we leverage here at Organic Remedies.

One type of extraction method that we use is a hydrocarbon extraction, and that is where we use...as the name suggests... a hydrocarbon to extract our biomass. That can be propane, butane, pentane, hexane or multiple different types of hydrocarbon solvents. With the hydrocarbon extraction method, we're able to produce our crystalline forms of extract, such as diamonds and sauce, sugars, as well as extract live materials to produce our live resin.

We also leverage supercritical CO2 extraction. With this extraction, we're able to produce more of a full spectrum product. We're able to extract some of the other compounds found in cannabis, such as the flavonoids, the carotenoids. Through our methods are able to preserve and retain all of our terpenes.

This is what produces our high terpene extracts, known as HTE's. And this is also how we produce our RSO and our distillates. All these products have the plant terpenes in them from the cannabis plant they were extracted from.
